Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Forge with sound clips and images.
Franchise: X-Men

Forge is a mutant and a recurring supporting character of the X-Men who first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #184 (August 1984). Forge has the mutant ability for invention - he can intuitively construct and use any kind of highly advanced mechanical device, sense mechanical energy, and reverse-engineer any machine. Forge's real name is unknown, though he is of the Cheyenne nation, raised to be the tribe's next medicine man by the village elder Naze. However, he leaves the nation and joins the military and while on tour, he loses his right hand and right leg, which he replaces with cybernetics he built. With his mutant ability, he quickly becomes an employee for the Defense Department and builds many weapons for them, including a device that neutralizes mutant powers. Said device removed the powers of Storm, whom Forge rescued and they began to have a romantic relationship. He enlists the help of the X-Men to help him destroy the powerful demon known as Adversary. Later on he joins X-Factor and then worked for the X-Men as support staff.

Marc Strange is my favorite.

Beau Weaver would be excellent as Forge.

VC thoughts update

Marc Strange has a really awesome voice and some really good delivery. I also really like the way how he differed his young and old Forge voices.

Sam Vincent works for a younger Forge.

Carlos Ferro has a pretty epic voice and his performance is solid. I really wish he could reprise the role.

Roger Craig Smith does sound pretty good but a tad too young for the design.

Phil LaMarr is also good.

Andrew Francis works for his version.

Lou Diamond Phillips leaves little to no impression on me.

Andrew plays a more punk version, he's differ than the others but I like his gruff somber voice. Not Andrew's typical role

Phillips' line here is above average, though it may just be the static that's helping him here. He's actually pretty generic-sounding.

I find Phil LaMarr's work as Forge greatly underrated and one of the successes of X-Men: Destiny, along with those behind Pixie, Iceman and Toad.

Roger Craig Smith's impression is how Sonic should sound like. He's my pick.
said at 7:08 PM on Mon Jan 13 2014
@TrueMyriad I never really thought that Forge sounded like Sonic, but to each their own I guess.

@GothamRed - I can hear it easily. I think if Roger founded a middle road between his Sonic and Forge voices, it'd be a home run for the Blue Blur.

A tie between Lou Phillips and Carlos Ferro.

Roger Craig Smith works for a younger Forge, but I'd like to hear him have a go at the older Forge.

...Dom? o_o; I didn't know Carlos Ferro voiced him once!

Gonna go with Lou Diamond Phillips, though Roger Craig Smith and Phil LaMarr are also good.

This is a great voice compare, as there's quite a few to choose from, and for the most part, everybody did exceptionally well. It's probably my favorite one you've done thus far UltimateCharm! Congrats! :D

I'm not exactly sure who I'd choose from in an instant, but I think I like Roger Craig Smith, Marc Strange, and Phil LaMarr the best, but it is quite close.
